I know, I know, you see the headline and you say, “stop it, Matt, you picked Argentina to win this group.” However, I absolutely love this Iceland team, and who doesn’t love some drama? Listen, I don’t love Argentina’s defense, and if they do not show up, Iceland is not the U.S.(too soon?). I understand this is a reach and most likely a hot take, but Argentina is a top heavy team. Some may say that their attack is sculpted by the gods, and their defense is sculpted by my dog who does not even know her name. Again, maybe an overreaction. Really though, who is their best defender? Otamendi? Mascherano? I just do not trust this Argentina defense. Out of all the lackluster games tomorrow, I think Iceland vs Argentina could provide the most exciting game. Does that mean an Iceland upset? Only time will tell.
